Period & Style
Louisiana Channel joined when hundreds of friends attended British-Indian artist Anish Kapoor's studio recording of the 'Gangnam for Freedom'-video in support of Ai Weiwei.
Earlier this year Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei recorded a gangnam style video, dancing handcuffed, sending a message to the Chinese authorities who responded by banning the video as soon as it came online. Louisiana Channel joined the invitation, along with hundreds of friends, to attend British-Indian Anish Kapoor's studio recording of the 'Gangnam for Freedom'-video in support of Ai Weiwei. In this video Kapoor comments on the possibilities of using pop music as a means of expressing political messages.
Recorded in London, November 2012.
Filmed by Matthias Pilz.
Produced by Kamilla Bruus and Christian Lund.
